People hate on CoD for hate's sake.

I'm pretty sure the argument boils down to the empowering feeling one has when disliking something that is popular. It's counter-culture at it's finest, to attack and hate something so that you may feel that you have a wiser and more educated opinion to oppose the masses.

Some arguments agaisnt the franchise are unjust, especially since BLOPS 2 is trying to bring something new to the table. I often see people hating it because they say it's the same every year. And yet, what game franchise isnt just that, more of the same at every iteration? If you are consequent with yourself and hate CoD for being similar to itself, then you should also hate other popular franchises that does just the same. How is Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3, Skyrim or anything else more new than BLOPS 2? They all add new campains, weapons and modes. They all also have the same fundamental gameplay from the previous titles. Why is CoD being judged more severely for "faults" that other games are being forgiven for? At least be consistent, hate all franchises for the same reasons and do not have double standards.

I'm not saying CoD are objectively great games or not. I for one enjoy them for what they are. It's great fun, and it does not mean that I cannot enjoy other games as well. Why are people so bent on hating this franchise as it would detract from their own experience? You dont have to even play it if you dont like it.

Hate mongers. It's the cool thing, to hate on the popular games that you don't like.

Because no one likes beating a dead horse.

COD is a dead horse.

What's next? Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4: Black Ops 3?

Yep, sure looks like a dead horse...a dead horse that will sell $100 million worth of games in the first week easy.

it's a dead horse because you idiots keep shelling out $60 for a multiplayer you already bought years ago.


This multiplayer usually comes with a plethora of new guns, new modes, new maps and a new campain. It's as much of a game sequel as any game franchise. How is any other game's multiplayer not also a dead horse?
